Here are some tips to guide you in your search.
You will want to dislodge yourself from the notion that your favorite local florist shop can handle your wedding, if they are a small operation that does not specialize in weddings, you will be in for one heck of a waking nightmare the day of your wedding. It requires a florist with a certain skill set and experience to craft a truly great wedding floral arrangement. Your local flower shop may be more than capable of handling holiday demands such as Mother's Day, Valentine's Day, Anniversary's, but weddings are an entirely different sort of monster. Ask if your local florist has any experience with weddings. We advise going with someone else if they do not have experience, no matter how much it may break your sweet heart. Generally, you should schedule interviews with three different florists. A good starting off point is with the recommendations of your friends and family, particularly the ones who have recently tied the knot. Search Google and online wedding directories for florists in the Orlando area. You should be thorough and read through reviews and bridal testimonials, and browse pictures that each florist has available on the web. They may have some general pricing information online, as well, especially on wedding directories.
Start reaching out and scheduling interviews with your floral candidates. It is imperative to visit their shop in order to get a sense of their personality through the presentation and organization of the shop. Do you like what you see? Are the arrangements and décor of the shop pleasant or positively revolting? If the floor is dirty, you better sweep this candidate off your list, friend. Have a good look at the condition of the flowers in the cooler. The flowers ought to be vibrant and fresh. You cannot trust a two bit operation that claims they specialize in weddings when their shop is essentially a disaster.
In the first interview with the florist candidate, you should express the ideas you have for the wedding. If you have a folder of pictures you should have been cataloging of floral arrangements you, again, should have been researching since you got engaged, you will definitely want to share this folder with the florist. At the very least, download Pinterest, and create a wedding board in order to share the URL with the candidates later, it is incredibly useful and straightforward. The florist should cooperate with you, and not be a thorn in your side. They should let your ideas flourish as long as they are somewhat in the realm of your budget. If they are overcritical like your junior high school art teacher Mr. Waterloo, then they are not the right candidate.
Before even considering your florist, you ought to have the locations of your wedding ceremony and reception booked, or at the very least, have them reserved. You will want to ask the candidate if they have experience with these venues, any familiarity helps. You will still want to take a walk through of the location with them at a later date, especially if you select them as your florist. Having a general idea of the preexisting themes and colors of the locations will help ideas bloom, and where you will be setting up the decorations. Give the florist a rough estimate of all the invitees, too.
Wrap up the initial meeting, and give them some idea to produce a sample for you. Book you florist about six months ahead of the big day, and start searching for them about a year ahead of the game. You will want to compare costs between each candidate to see which one offers the best deals and packages. Go over the logistics with them to see how they will go about setting them up. Once you make your pick, write up a contract with the florist, and place a deposit. On the day of your wedding, love will bloom when you see your floral arrangements, we promise!
